OUR ONLINE CHECKOUT is CLOSED and we are NOT accepting any NEW orders at this time.

We are still fulfilling and shipping previously submitted and/or delayed order requests (as product availability allows) UNTIL NOVEMBER 15th 2022.

But after November 15th, all still pending backordered unshipped items will be automatically CANCELLED **(except for any special ordered drop-shipped or made/machined-to-order items).

Our ability to respond to emails is greatly hampered by being under-staffed during this downsize transition time. But we continue to endeavor to answer email inquiries as best we can. And we will continue responding to emails through until early March 2023 because we are wholly committed to resolving any other issues that may arise from previous sales. It is still UNCERTAIN, but we may re-open a substantially downsized version of our store again in the Spring of 2023.

We sincerely appreciate your patience, understanding during this period of restructuring and/or closing. And a huge thank you to all of you whose support and loyalty we have been the beneficiary of over the 23 years that we have worked diligently to support the information and parts needs of the aircooled VW community!

Pertronix 45kV Flamethrower III Ignition Coil, Chrome, .32 Ohm (CDI Compatible), 44001

Pertronix 40kV Flamethrower III Ignition Coil, Chrome, .32 Ohm (CDI Compatible), 44001


 
Pertronix 45kV Flamethrower III Ignition Coil, Chrome, .32 Ohm (CDI Compatible), 44001 fits in the stock distributor clamp, and is compatible with CDI Ignitions with it's .32 Ohm Impedance. Low Impedance keeps the coil temperatures down, and a bigger spark! Flamethrower III coils are compatible with Ignitor III electronics only

Its higher voltage allows larger spark plug gaps or firing through plug fouling. However, we ALWAYS recommend stock plug gaps, even with monster ignition system power.

Its higher voltage allows larger spark plug gaps or firing through plug fouling.

This coil is internally resisted just like the stock blue coil so it is compatible with everything. You can use this with CDI ignition systems, though those systems run best with 0 Ohm Resisted Coils.

This coil is oil filled, which provides great heat control. High vibration applications (Off Road) should use our Epoxy Filled version of this coil.

A 3 Ohm Coil Impedance is compatible with points, and points replacement devices, in 12V electrical systems, and a Low Impedance coil is used with CDI Ignitions.

We recommend that you check your coil to be sure! Simply use an Ohmmeter and with all the wires taken off the terminals of the coil attach the positive and negative, red and black, wires of the meter to first the small terminals (Positive and Negative) that are printed or stamped on the coil. You should have a reading of at least 3-4.5 ohms for use with points or points replacement devices, which is the resistance reading inside the coil. A bad coil will show a higher reading than 3-4.5, you want less resistance.

Overview
 
Pertronix 45kV Flamethrower III Ignition Coil, Chrome, .32 Ohm (CDI Compatible), 44001 fits in the stock distributor clamp, and is compatible with CDI Ignitions with it's .32 Ohm Impedance. Low Impedance keeps the coil temperatures down, and a bigger spark!

While it's the perfect coil to go with the Pertronix Ignitor III (Flamethrower III coils are compatible with Ignitor III electronics only) breakerless ignition, the addition of this 40,000 volt Flame-Thrower canister coil can benefit virtually any CDI ignition system.

Its higher voltage allows larger spark plug gaps or firing through plug fouling. However, we ALWAYS recommend stock plug gaps, even with monster ignition system power.
Item Features
The things you have to choose from when selecting your ignition coil are as follows.
  • Proper Primary Resistance (Impedance). This ensures compatibility with your points or triggering device. Unless it's a CDI you need 3 ohms of Primary Coil Resistance.
  • Shape. You want the coil to mount properly. Having one that doesn't fit your stock distributor clamp is something you want to know before you have to mount it!
  • Plug wire compatibility. Works with your coil wire!
  • Finish. Black or Chrome? You sometimes have options for Coil Finish.
